[chirp_users] Csv files

Windows file explorer usually defaults to masking known file extensions 
during display.  Since double clicking the file opened your calc 
program, Windows knows that file extension and associates it with the 
calc program rather than Excel.

Right click->properties on the filename should show the complete name.

Right click->"Open with" may be available to direct Windows to Excel 
rather than Calc.  Otherwise, drag and drop the filename on Excel to 
open as a spreadsheet.  The CSV column data does not match exactly what 
you see in the CHIRP memories tab.  The CSV file contains the column 
values required by CHIRP import, where the memories tab displays the 
data in a user friendly form.

>>                Hi Dave, thanks for responding. I'm afraid I didn't make myself quite as clear as I should have. I read somewhere that you can convert the image to a CSV file in order to print out a hard copy of what is in the memories. that is what I was trying to do. I did run a Windows Search for the CSV file and it came up empty so I don't know what is happening to it.
